Both the club and the team are very friendly, and as well as the football get involved in the community, including an incredibly popular Beer Festival this weekend attended by many of the parents and players of the team.
The Hornets have Junior teams for many age groups and a Saturday morning club for those not yet old enough for teams. There’s more details and a contact form on their website.
Hot on the heels of their sponsorship of the Balsall Common Festival, the team at the Bengal Brasserie have now added local youth football to their list of community sponsorships.
Their latest deal sees them put their name to the Balsall & Berkswell FC Under 15s Hornets squad:
About the Bengal Brasserie
The Bengal Brasserie restaurant has been serving customers in Balsall Common since the early 1990’s, with a friendly, welcoming team that’s enthusiastically supported a wide range of community projects throughout their history in the village.
Visitors to the restaurant can expect a wide choice of Indian and Bangladeshi dishes, including fish-dishes and even English options for those who struggle with spicy dishes.
They also provide a delivery service within a range of up to 5 miles.
349-351 Kenilworth Road
Three teams from Balsall Common Primary School had the chance to design and race their own F1 cars as part of a F1 in schools challenge.
12 Year 4 pupils worked in three teams to create the most aerodynamic cars possible. As well as making the cars, the teams had to secure sponsors, deliver presentations to a judging team and answer questions about their project. They were able to use the latest computer aided design technology and printers to make the cars. Then the teams raced the cars along a 20m track, powered by gas canisters, taking less than 1.5 seconds to cover the distance.
Team Turbo, Fire Blaze and Lightning Strike worked incredibly hard supporting each other, maximising their talents and building on the excellent support offered by Ian Dunning a designer from Jaguar Land Rover on hand to guide their work and gently suggest improvements.
Berkswell Cricket Club are on the lookout for a summer home for their 25 year old overseas South African star Sean Jamison. The English Cricket Board Premier Division Cricket Club are offering £400 per month (board and bills) for accommodation for the fast bowler, anywhere in Balsall Common from early April until the season ends in mid-September.
The rising star of South African cricket has been signed to bolster Berkswell’s already successful first team squad and provide coaching across the club, from youth cricket to senior cricket, including the club’s brand new women’s cricket section.
Anyone interested in putting up a summer lodger is invited to contact club secretary James Neale by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
